hi hi ckgirl,
unfortunately, they dun give the menu for veggie & muslim meals. i saw the muslim meals (even brought back some cos 1 of my guest din turn up) got satay, briyani rice, some rendang etc
Their sound system is pretty good to me, though I'm not an expert in this area to give good judgement.
Noble house has their own music but we use our own songs.
Their first dish presentation song was a fast beat new age music.. I felt my heart still beating very fast after the whole song.. think that wasn't very good for digestion, so decided to choose my own.
Below is my rough calculation b4 dinner. I kept track of budget in a spreadsheet lor.
Dinner @ $566 per table $15,848.00
Muslim (4 person @$59) $236.00
Vegetarian (3 person @$59) $177.00
Wine corkage (3 cartons) $208.80
Wine (3 cartons @ $16.95) $610.20
Extra 20L barrel of beer ($380)
Stout per can ($8)
Food tasting (50% of 1 table) $283.00
the calculation is based on last year's pricing. i believed that for this year, there's a $10 increase.
there is no free food tasting for all TL restaurants if i remember correctly. Anyway, some hotels only provide FOC food testing for 6 dishes. but this food tasting is for 10 persons. so what we did is booked the karaoke room for FT & invite my dad's frens to join in. being frequent restaurant customers, they helped us to access the food
actually, it depends what you and your partner looks into when choosing a restuarant. most importantly is whether you both like the place when you first see it.
maybe you might consider the following:
- location of the venue
- whether is there any blockage by pillars
- long or short walk-in aisle (depending on your preference)
- size of the changing room in the restuarant (whether it is very squeezing or spacious)
- does the guest need to walk a long way before reaching the restuarant? i.e does the carpark lift leads straight up to the restuarant?
- does it have a reception for your guest?
- whether the restuarant also accommodate other wedding dinner on the same day as yours?
- how many waitress / waiters per table?
- what is the latest time that the restuarant will ends the dinner time?
Hi Janey, I already booked with NH and I jus attendend my fren's wedding in Sept 04. There are no pillars blocking in between and it is squarish hall. However the place is a little cramp for all 32 tables. The deco is pretty and simple with red roses. I am not sure if we can choose wat flowers/ colors for deco. I can check with my fren whenshe comes back from her honeymoon.
Yep, they provide a changing room but I don't think they allow for rehearsals before the AD since they are a dim sum kind of restaurants on day time.
Frankly, the place does not look good although the food is very high standard. The place is a little cramped and some tables have to be in the room which does not have a view of the main stage. The main stage is pathetic in size so there is hardly any aisle for march in lor.
Not very nice for grand weddings I think but good for intimate weddings. Food is great though...
The gap between the good restaurants and the lower-end hotels are closing. Not sure which to settle for. By the way, does NH throw in any 1/2nights hotel deal for the couple? If so, which hotel do they usually tie up with?
We had our wedding dinner at Noble Hse earlier this year.
We had a total of 38 tables, so we got no choice but to open up those private function rooms at one side of the main hall. The resturant was cramp and noisy that day. We certainly did not have a grand wedding banquet like those held at hotels ballroom, nevertheless, we had a good time and our guests enjoyed the food.
They do not tie up with any hotels.
Moo, noble house has old shophouse deco. I'm not sure if that is consider cheena. Anyway, the theme for our wedding is also a cheena one, so we aren't really concern about that
hi all, I had my food tasting last week. To my surprise, the decor of the place has changed as they have just finished renovation. The carpet is changed (no more cheena red strip down the middle) and they have chosen a light brown colour for the seat covers and table clothes. The place looks so much nicer and quite like a ballroom. So do go down and take a look if you guys are considering the place.
The minus points are: you have to book your own hotel room and guests have to pay $2 for parking cos the restaurant doesn't provide free parking coupons. But they are also providing free rental of the video equipment, free printing of inserts, waiver of corkage charges, so you gals can weigh the pros and cons.
HI! Brides who held your dinners in NH, care to share your/relatives/friends comments about the food? I'm in a dilemma to choose either from Club Chinois or NH.
CC is held in a ballrm hence better ambience? though more expensive, the packages offer better perks. However I've read some poor comments abt the food...some say gd, some say it sux..so not sure what to do...
NH had alot of gd comments but the ambience is not as nice and dun prov alot of perks such as seat covers and parking coupons etc...
I had my dinner at NH in Jan 2003. Not sure if there is much changes now. Back there, NH provides 1 of the best food and the portion is rather big. I was very glad that all of my guests gave me good comment after that. My sis's dinner was at CC, good ambience but the food so-so. The other good point about NH is that they are rather flexible about their menu, we changed 6 out of 9 dishes in the menu. If you are thinking about having around 28 tables, NH is still quite alright.
Thank you so much for your feedback. My hubby and I dropped by NH last week. Other than abit of inconvenience abt the location of the restaurant, we are very satisfied with the place. I particularly liked the simple and elegant beidge deco of the place. Simple yet inviting.
decided to drop a note here. for those who are still thinking where to book, better check availability of the date first, cos there is only one venue... i wanted to take noble house too, but when i called up last mth, the date i want is alreday taken up...and it is 11 march 2006... sigh...
u should go chk out the venue urself. the ppl there are very nice n freindly. the 35 tables for main hall can fit. but quite cramp. if they open up the private rooms, there will b some pillars blocking the view. but the pillars are not very big. so prob 1-2 persons per table in that area would miss the stage. that's abt all.
we are intending to hv our banquet there too. but hv yet to book. when is ur AD?
We have total of 38 tables for our wedding dinner. Only 32 tables can fit into the main hall, so we have one side of the the private rooms "opened up" and have our muslim and vegetarian guests seated there. Though there are some pillars, our guests still managed to see the stage.
Anyway, I don't think it matter too much because the guests will spend more time eating than looking at the stage
